After the climate emergency declaration, what comes next?
Joining a growing number of communities across Canada that have made similar declarations, the PEC Council has declared a climate emergency.
However ’emergency’ means different things to different people.
As a condition for appointment to the Environmental Advisory Committee (EAC), each member should sign a Climate Emergency Pledge:
1 I realize that time is of the essence and that the Committee should procede as quickly as possible
2 I will encourage and consider all citizen proposals in these areas:
a)housing b)energy c)transportation
3 I will consider each problem that arises as an opportunity to improve life for our residents
4. I will make every effort to contribute to the production of a report to Council within 3 months for a recorded vote on each proposal
5 I will make every effort to inform the public of the rational for each proposal and its final determination
